Quote

 

"Just because you're happy doesn't mean you're not having bad days. True happiness from the standpoint of Flourish Emory is not the idea of Pollyanna happiness, where you're always happy and nothing ever goes wrong or where everything that makes you happy is in the future like the next grade or next job."
Marc Cordon, WABE-FM, March 8, 2016
